Getting Started with Measurement Research in Creative Drama.
The best way to get started in conducting measurement research in creative drama is to understand creative drama as fully as possible in order to discover significant issues that need the kind of clarification that measurement research can provide. A few basic research questions that will help people focus on particular projects in creative drama research include the following: (1) What do various kinds of children naturally do when involved in the activity of creative drama? (2) How can the discipline of creative drama serve to broaden, enhance, and enrich the behaviors of various kinds of children in the most efficient manner possible? and (3) What effect does this participation in creative drama have on other activities or behaviors? Once a research question has been formulated, the researcher must choose a standard format for measurement study in creative drama. Depending on the nature of the question selected, researchers can choose the classic experimental model or the observational approach. (RL)
